Give any room an old world send-off with Wendy Gold's stunning, vintage globe art. A familiar object is transported to a sphere of pure imagination as Gold carefully sources antique globes and transforms them into one-of-a-kind worlds using hand-cut, "decoupaged" paper banners. Arranged with the charm and palette from another era, Gold seal the sweeping patterns with a modern coat of eco-friendly varnish. The end result is a geographic sculpture of uncharted beauty--perfectly weathered and utterly unique. Handmade in San Francisco.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each globe and stand is one of a kind and will vary.

“Inspiration has come to me steadily throughout life, and I have been fortunate to be able to chase it,” says Wendy Gold. She explains that as a teenager she “spent countless hours creating insanely intricate friendship bracelets, kaleidoscopes, and ceramic musical instruments,” and in college made a headboard for her bed so big that she couldn’t get it out of her room when she moved out. Always looking for new inspiration, she stumbled across a beautiful antique globe at a flea market and immediately recognized her next canvas. By using recycled materials, vintage globes, and maps, she creates beautiful, geographic art.
